M. quadriceps is the summed up mass of the two M. quadriceps, M. longissimus is the mass of the two M. Longissimus, muscle mass is the sum of the two M. longissimus and the two M. quadriceps, fat mass is the body composition’s fat mass and lean mass is the body composition’s lean mass, glycogen content is measured from M. longissimus. Pos Mb is the physical position of the marker in Mb and Pos cM is the position of marker in centiMorgans. LOD scores in bold are significant. Confidence intervals (C.I.) are given in cM using a one LOD drop following Lander & Botstein [24].
